This town is, in fact, big enough for the both of us. We need a fourth.
Were you too busy gaming this week to pay attention to MMO news? Get caught up every Sunday evening with Massively Overpowered’s Week in Review!

Gotta love those weeks when there are so many huge stories I can’t decide what to feature here and just feature them all! Conan Exiles launched this week, with lots of praise – except for Funcom’s disastrous handling of PvE-conflict servers. Bless Online shocked its community by springing optional subscriptions just a few weeks ahead of launch and not exactly dazzling press previewers. Wild West Online blundered onward into its ill-advised formal launch from early access, in spite of criticism over its incomplete state (and lack of female toons). And just to cap it all off, the Daybreak/Columbus Nova/Renova mess took a bizarre turn into the tawdriest corners of political intrigue. What a week! I need a drink.

Read on for the very best of this week’s MMO news and opinions.
